Whole Vanilla

Any ideas on what to do with whole vanilla beans? I bought them at Costco awhile ago with a recipe in mind but haven't got around to making it. I just want to use them up. IDEAS?

Oatmeal Pancakes

Just had these for the first time a couple weekends ago and it won't be the last time - super good and they freeze nicely for future breakfasts on the go!

4 cups rolled oats
4 cups buttermilk
6 eggs
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup flour
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda

Mix rolled oats and buttermilk in a bowl and cover. Let this mixture stand overnight in the refrigerator.

Next morning, add eggs, sugar, and melted butter. Sift flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in separate bowl. Stir into mixture until just combined. Cook on lightly greased griddle. Yields 24 pancakes.

Double the recipe and freeze some for later!

Serve with a variety of homemade jams and syrups (peach, raspberry, blackberry) or with butter and cinammon/sugar.
